MGTOWs celebrate the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg in their own inimitable way

Somehow it’s always all about them

Some Men Going Their Own Way are reacting to news of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death with a certain malicious glee. “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead,” writes one fellow in the MGTOW subreddit. “HAHAHA prayers do work, now let’s end abortion,” responds another.

Meet the man who mansplained The Handmaid’s Tale … to Margaret Atwood

Elisabeth Moss in The Handmaid’s Tale

By David Futrelle

With the right slowly but surely winning its war on the right to abortion, in both legal and practical terms, you might expect Margaret Atwood — you know, the author of the Handmaid’s Tale, the dystopian novel about an oppressively patriarchal state that’s been turned into a really very depressing Hulu series — to be feeling more than a little angry about the state of women’s rights in the US today.

“Reproductive rights is a license for women not to reproduce,” complains former Love Connection host Chuck Woolery

That’s one ugly baby

By David Futrelle

Chuck Woolery is probably best known for two things: 1) being the host of the dating show Love Connection back in the 80s and early 90s and 2) his off-brand cartoon superhero head.

Ladies! Protect your right to gestate from men who want to grow babies in a box, world’s weirdest “reproductive rights” activist declares

Ladies! Protest your eggs from men who want to give birth

By David Futrelle

Most reproductive rights activists today are doing their best to deal with the increasingly likely reversal of Roe V. Wade, brought a step closer to reality by the draconian anti-abortion bill just signed into law in Alabama, likely to be appealed all the way up to the Supreme Court.

Men hold the copyright to babies because their sperm creates life and women’s eggs are just sort of the baby house, confused anti-abortion MRA explains

Eggs: Just containers for sperm babies, basically

By David Futrelle

Sexual reproduction can be confusing. Luckily, there are always some very smart men around to explain it to any ladies who might need a refresher course. Like this dude, whose contribution to the abortion debate got the attention of @TakedownMRAs on Twitter.

Incels lose it (even more so than usual) after woman jokes about the “aborted girlfriend” meme

whoooooooosh

By David Futrelle 

Incels aren’t really very good at the whole “humor” thing. Last week, I wrote about the “Imaginary Girlfriend” meme in which an earnest stick-figure woman declares that if she hadn’t been aborted she could have grown up to be every incel’s dream girl. “Sorry I couldn’t be there for you,” she says. “But my mom had other plans … would have liked to have a lot of kids with you.”

#ResistTrump abortion actual activism trump

#ResistTrump locally, with Flippable, Town Hall Project, Planned Parenthood

Don’t you know I’m LOCAL?

Most of the political activism that makes up The Resistance takes place on the local level. While perhaps a million people made it to the Women’s March in Washington, most of those who marched that day did so in their own cities.
